Why stay here ...

Croeso, Welcome

The CL is part of Cefn Coch  an old traditional Welsh Country Farm  House situated on the southern edge of the Snowdonia National Park, where the mountains meet the sea.  

The house is steeped in history and has in the past been a coaching inn, a working farm and is recorded as being the last tavern in the village of Llanegryn. Evidence of it's history can still be found in several areas of the house and gardens. Extended family members and friends are welcome to stay for' bed and breakfast'.

The CL is a secluded level area of about 0.50 acre grass meadow and has been described as a place of peace and tranquillity. We are an adult only site. Pets are welcome and there is direct access to good dog walks. There is a hard standing site and all pitches have electrical hook-up and space for awnings. There is toilet on site. 

We would like you to get the most out of your stay at Cefn Coch. Taste some local food. Enjoy local lamb, tasty cheeses, creamy yoghurts and potent beers - all made in Wales.

Throughout the seasons the views are constantly changing, from the snow-capped mountains in the winter, spring time lambs and the beautiful lush green pastures of summer. At any time of the year Cefn Coch offers a secluded and beautiful setting for quiet relaxation.

Take in some Welsh culture and enjoy the many attractions and spectacular scenery.

The area is well known for its spectacular countryside, mountain and coastal walks, many of these can be started from the CL.

Cefn Coch is a haven for many birds. Buzzards, Red Kites and Cormorants are frequently seen. It has spectacular views over the Dysynni Valley and surrounding countryside.  

From the CL you can see the famous Bird Rock and Cader Idris Mountain range which is very imposing at the head of a tranquil valley.

Within easy reach are many interesting and entertaining places to visit, historic castles, narrow gauge railways, gold and slate mines.

Sea and freshwater fishing, pony trekking, and bike hire is available.

You may wish to visit Ynys -hir home of the BBC Spring Watch or spot Britain's rarest bird of prey at Dyfi Osprey Project.

Cefn Coch is therefore a perfect base for exploring the beautiful Snowdonia National Park - both its mountains and its coast and for exploring the many spectacular and unique narrow gauge steam railway experiences in Mid Wales.

Steam through unspoilt on the Talyllyn Railway, or take the Welsh Highland Railway from Porthmadog to historic Caernafon.

Travel through the magnificent Snowdonia countryside on the Ffestiniog Railway or the Vale of Rheidol Railway from scholarly Aberystwyth to intriguing Devils Bridge.

Walk the Mawddach trail featured on the BBC Railway Walks with Julia Bradbury.

Ride the water powered cliff railway into the famous Centre for Alternative Technology.

Close to Wales Coastal Path and our CL has mountain views.

fantastic holiday

We have just returned from a fabulous week spent at this CL. Pat and Mike, the owners gave us a warm welcome, and our pitch allowed us to look out over the stunning scenery of the Welsh mountains. The CL grass area was immaculate, water and waste facilities very easy to access. The on site loo was adequate for use if no on board toilet. Tywyn has a co-op, Spar and petrol station, and a great promenade to walk along, which we did most evenings as it was so beautiful. We also visited the Dol Goch water falls and went on the steam train which runs from Tywyn through some stunning scenery. Aber Dovey is also a lovely place to visit with stunning beach and small harbour. All in all a great site and we will happily visit again if in this area.

Very disappointed

We didn't stay here but we visited family who were here. We where 2 miles down the road in an excellent CL. I really felt it for my family, the scenery in the area is stunning but couldn't be seen from the site as the hedges were so high you felt closed in.  The toilet was not very pleasant, dirty and unwelcoming. It's a real shame as all it needed was a bit of TLC and there is room to add a shower. When you go to a Caravan club site you expect a lot better standard than this.

Mixed feelings

This was our second choice, (first being full) in this area, the reviews, which we rely on made it our second choice. We found the site easily but were confused by the closed gates and no arrow under the club site sign. Getting in and pitching was easy enough and the welcome and instructions were friendly. We felt the pitches were closed in with views being hampered with hedges that could have been cut to show a picture postcard back drop. It wasn't as quiet as we would have liked due to road noise, although the night was quiet. The thing that really let this site down though for us was the toilet facility that was in need of some love. My wife refused to use it.

A great welcome in a superb location

This lovely CL is located in a glorious part of west Wales, the views make opening the blinds every morning a joy. The owners are kindness personified, booking was easy and the welcome great. I'd warmly recommend Cefn Coch to anyone (and often do)
